Morpheus Tether Test 24

This is the 24th tether test of the Morpheus Vehicle. This test was performed with the “Bravo” version of the vehicle and tested some of the new backup systems. There are two firings in this test, the first firing was soft aborted. This was caused by an imbalance in the fuel load which caused the vehicle to exceed it’s tight safety zone. The 2nd firing was a complete success.
